My niece was given news today that no parent ever wants to hear….
“It’s time to prepare for the end”
Two months is too little
They let him go
They had no sudden healing.
To think that providence would take a child from his mother while she prays….
Who told us we’d be rescued?
What has changed
and why should we be saved from nightmares.
We’re asking why this happened
to us who have died to live
This is what means to be held
How is feels when the Sacred is torn from your life
and you survive.
This is what it is to be loved
and to know
that the promised was when everything fell
You’d be held…
Please pray with me that my niece and her family will be held during this difficult time. Hug your little ones and thank God for each day.
Ashlee, you will be amazed at what you can live through, even when you may not want to.
